Needing a Practice Exit Strategy?

Prepare a Practice Continuation Agreement
The AICPA reports that an overwhelming majority of Baby Boomer CPA’s have not adequately planned for their retirement or exit strategy from their firm.  While considering your succession, it is also important to have a practice continuation agreement in place. Think of it as a survival kit for your practice. In the event of death or temporary or permanent disability, a practice continuation agreement helps protect your practice, the business interests of your clients and the financial interests of you and your family. It can also be used as a vehicle for retirement.

Take Care of Your Clients
Your clients are an important part of your firm’s success going forward, and critical to ensure you obtain a fair buyout of your practice. We work with you to help ensure a smooth transition from one relationship manager to the next as owners retire. Start by putting client transition strategies and processes in place. We are talking about such details as how and when clients will be transitioned and the communication that should take place between the partners and the clients during the handoff.
